Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen #101: Apple Pie

Time for Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
(A weekly linky to share what you and your children have created in the kitchen.)


The linky is at the bottom.

I would like to apologize that Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen is late this week. We celebrated our Thanksgiving yesterday, and I couldn't put it up early because our Apple Pie was made on Thanksgiving in preparation for last night's dinner.  The children and I have made apple pie before, but never as a Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen, so I thought it was about time to rectify that oversight. In the past we have used an apple pie recipe from the book, The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall. Unfortunately, I can't find the book, so I adapted a recipe I found on


6 cups thinly sliced apples
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbs flour
1 Tbs butter
pie crust
(There is vanilla pictured because one of the suggestions I saw called for adding vanilla. Unfortunately, I forgot to put it in, mainly because it wasn't a part of the recipe and I wasn't sure when exactly I was supposed to put it in.)

Harold poured the sugar into the large bowl.

Tabitha measured the cinnamon in.

Hannah added the flour.

Then Amelia stirred (though she really wanted to add an ingredient).

Mommy then peeled, cored, and sliced the apples. 

Hannah and Amelia helped to dump them into the sugar mixture.

Then Amelia helped me stir the apples into the sugar mixture.

We lined the pie plate with the first crust (we use store bought to save time and because I have yet to perfect pie-crust-making). We poured the apples in, then I dotted the butter on top. I then covered it with the other crust.

 All ready to go in the oven!

I baked it in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, then I lowered the temperature to 350 degrees and baked it for another 30 minutes.


1- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2- Prepare pie crust.
3- Combine sugar, cinnamon, and flour in a large bowl.
4- Pour into pie plate lined with pie crust.
5- Dot with butter.
6- Cover with second pie crust and seal edges. 
7- Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees for an additional 30-35 minutes.

Do you have your children help you in the kitchen?  What lessons do they learn? Do you have any kid friendly recipes to share?
I'd love to see your posts, whether you have done something this week or some time in the past. Just link up below. This is a weekly linky.
